1997 version with Sophie Marceau and Sean Bean
This adaptation is perhaps the most visually stunning of the serious adaptations. I consider the recent version with Keira Knightly an art piece separate but listed below. This version incorporates real scenery rather than set artwork. The pastoral countryside, the palaces and country houses, the artistic cinematography, the imagery is just incredible. From Kitty's red coat against the white snow, the white lily's against green grass of a country palace, or the kiss after Levin's second proposal framed in a staircase under a massive stone archway (huge urns on each side, the light coming from the background creating negative space up front). As stunning as these scenes appear, they are seemingly natural to the flow rather than distractingly artistic. I felt the imagery even paid a little homage to the famous paintings by James Tissot which illustrate famous editions of Anna Karenina. Surely the art director had seen them. I included a few screen shots below, but they don't do full justice.
Almost every single character in this movie is played by a recognizable star. This is a strength and a weakness. The accents are a little uneven as the all-star cast doesn't come together in a cohesive whole. You will hear everything including British, American, Canadian, French and Russian accents. Noticeably so. Despite the stars, not all the acting is that strong as big names seem to be more important than proper casting for character. Plot flow can be choppy as expected for such a long book squeezed into a short movie. Picture quality was surprisingly good for an old DVD. Someday this will make an amazing Blu Ray transfer and hopefully they can add footage to flesh it out better than the original cut. Still highly recommended with caveats.
BRIEF COMPARISONS TO OTHER EDITIONS with links to the product (this list is not comprehensive and I apologize if a favored version is not represented. I already watched nearly 24 hrs of video not counting research and writing!) This list is not in order of precedence and each version has merits. You can see slightly more detailed versions of my reviews like the paragraph above by going to each product page.
1977 BBC Mini Series Anna Karenina with Nicola Pagett
The Gold Standard of adaptations even after so many years. Despite the 70's BBC acting style, this version has aged well with tremendous faithfulness to the book and ideas behind it. Performances are melodramatic to today's audience, but so good they are relevant. It is still my favorite rendition. You must be up for nearly 10 hrs worth of story though.
2000 Materpiece Theater Masterpiece Classic: Anna Karenina, Part 1 with Helen McCrory and Kevin McKidd
This version is the next longest I viewed and fairly faithful to the plot and spirit of the book. The acting style is more natural (less stage play melodramatic) and the entire focus seems to be on a realistic portrayal. Lead actors less compelling than I would have liked. This version will still be some peoples' favorite. It is not mine.
1948 Anna Karenina with Vivien Leigh and Kieron Moore
Classic black and white is a different style and shouldn't be compared too critically with modern adaptations. It has the charm of a golden age of cinema. Leigh is perhaps still the most elegant Anna and Kieron Moore the most dashing Vronsky after all this time.
1985 TV Movie Anna Karenina with Jacqueline Bisset and Christopher Reeve
Shortened or edited version is somewhat lifeless though the flow is less choppy than other adaptations. Badly in need of a restoration in video/sound quality and return of the lost footage not found in any copies I know of.
2012 Art film by Joe Wright Anna Karenina with Kiera Knightly
This is not for Tolstoy traditionalists! However, the stunning visuals and choreographed set pieces really are brilliant. It is set like a stage play and tends to swirl around a lot. I hated it the first time because I wanted something else. Understanding it better, I like it more.
The book by Tolstoy is so long, it is brilliant that this film deals with not all of the themes, but centers on the relationships of 3 main couples. A secondary theme is the contrast between false piety displayed by Anna's husband and his friend the self-righteous and self-serving countess, and true piety which grows in the character of Dimitri and his relationship with Kitty. In the end, the unfaithful lovers pay the price for their wilfulness, but even the tragic ending is beautifully played out in the acting and in the way the scene is staged.
All in all the ballroom scene is my favorite. The costumes, the setting, the dancing are superb.
You will love this film.
